'A truly great garden should enrich your soul, and those of many others - hopefully for generations to come.'

This is celebrated landscape designer Paul Bangay's inspirational story of creating Stonefields, one of Australia's most beautiful country gardens. The Garden at Stonefields reveals the triumphs and trials of designing and building this extraordinary house and garden – Paul's most challenging and personal project yet. Photographed by Paul's long-time collaborator Simon Griffiths, the stunning photos reveal the evolution of the site from conception to completion, and capture the unique beauty of each area of the garden. The book also features extracts from Paul's personal diary, an intimate and compelling account of dealing with drought, bushfires and the threat of mining in contemporary rural Australia.

Book Cover: The Enchanted Garden

'Woodend was less than an hour from my Melbourne office, and the size of the school land was manageable. That was as far as my rational response to St Ambrose went – for I'd fallen in love with the schoolhouse. It had been tucked away for so long behind its walls of blackberries, like some sleeping beauty, that I wanted to wake it up, bring it to life.'
